The parking lots at The Park Expo will open two hours prior to show open each day for attendees.

There are more than 4,000 parking spots at and immediately adjacent to The Park Expo & Conference Center, but they tend to fill up quickly. Lots at The Park, plus Bojangles Coliseum, Ovens Arena, Golden Green Hotel, and even the nearby elementary school (weekends only), all open two hours prior to the show open each day. Come early for the most convenient parking! Look for free golf cart shuttles being run by the Shriner’s to whisk you from your car to the door—grab a seat if you spot one!

Handicapped Parking

Customers must inform the parking attendant that they need or would like handicapped parking.  After paying for parking, the attendant will then give instructions on how to get to the  handicapped parking area.  To insure your parking, the customer must hang their handicapped placard from the mirror or notify the attendant that the vehicle has a permanent handicapped parking tag.

If all handicapped parking spots are full, attendants will still allow you to drop off guests at the front door before you park in general parking.
